Stephanie Rustem – Camp Assistant Director
They’re finally here!
This week, we welcomed our first batch of campers to Cedar Lake. Camp feels alive again with 12 day and 48 overnight campers. Thus far, campers have had a chance to try their hand at archery and riflery, demonstrated their swimming abilities, and learned proper canoeing technique. In addition, most of the campers are learning how to be safe hunters while a handful of campers learn how to leave no trace while engaging with the outdoors.
Even though the week started off soggy, the campers were excited to get outside and play in the rain. Some campers tried their hand at arts and crafts with Plaster of Paris animal prints, hikes through the woods, and lots of games on the field (Raccoon Tail Tag being a favorite). The campers have also enjoyed singing and watching skits each evening at campfire whether sitting at the sunny amphitheater or in The Lodge on rainy evenings.
It’s exciting to watch the campers grow into conservationists and stewards of the outdoors.
